## Measure Computer Screen Size With Simple Math

You have learned to measure computer screens and laptop screens with tape.

You can also measure the computer screen through math. You can measure the screen using the Pythagorean Theorem.

We are going to tell you now how you can find the screen size of your monitor with the help of the Pythagoras theorem.

First measure the width of the screen.

Now you need to measure the screen of the monitor.

Now square the width and height of the monitor screen and add the two numbers together.

Calculate the square root of this sum to get the diagonal measurement and screen size.

For example, suppose the width of your computer screen is 13 inches and the height is 7 inches.

Now you need to multiply the width of the computer screen by itself (13 x 13 = 169 ) which will add up to 169.

Now you need to multiply the width by itself (7 X 7 = 49 )

Now you have two numbers (169,7 ), now add these two numbers together (169+49 = 218 )

Now you have to find the square root of the total (√218 = 14.76 ).

14.76 inches is the measurement of your computer screen.
